The latest PlayStation 5 firmware update has arrived, ushering in improvements to system performance and stability fixes for the DualSense controller, among other things.
The new update brings the PS5 firmware up to version 21.01-03.20.00. In addition to the system performance update and stability improvements for the DualSense, the update fixes an issue that “restricted the functionality of some screens when the screen reader was enabled.”
The patch also fixes a problem that could cause games you’ve hidden on PS4 to not appear as hidden on PS5. And finally, the June 9 update improves the stability of copying games from USB storage to the console. You can see the full patch notes below, as posted by Sony on its website.
